Subject: the whole archive
I would not use this archive again, as they use time code on all the film. Was this their intention that no one else could use the video?

I suggest taking all the videos down because they are useless

There is more on this submarine's previous career on the Collecting History site. She was a top 'scorer' and survived to the end of the war.
